I would definitely have to say Athlon.
And as long as you know that an amd 1800ghz is not called xp 1800 if there is such a thing.
there is such a thing
1.8ghz athlon is not an 1800+ but rather a 2200+
amd performance rating...
Slowly getting my way around this amd thing. Took me about three reads to get that.
both a 1.8ghz athlon and athlon xp 1800+ are quite a bit faster than a celeron 2ghz.
I ran pcmark2002 the other day. My 2200+ beat a 2.5pentium in the comparison chart. However a 1900+ beat me out on the same chart for some reason. Go figure.
the setups do matter...
I work on a 2200+ and a 2.4 ghz intel side by side @ work and trust me... there is no comparison...
sure you can oc and what not but for office use @ stock speeds... amd has better iq for the apps we use..
AMD is certainly better.
You really can't compare an Athlon XP to a Celeron, come on!
The Athlon is definitely a better option. The L2 cache plays a big role there. My Pentium III outperforms Celerons with higher clock speeds.
